Ireland When-in-Ireland

A right tool

Scanning Gmail’s spam folder (815 emails after 2 days) is much more entertaining when I remember that all those messages about a longer tool refer to a completely different thing in Cork.

Sort of. 9 pages of spam.

I need to scan them because Gmail catches an alarming number of legitimate email, despite all my training. Sheesh.

GMAil does this heuristics:
1) SCAN for AUTH SPF, if exists proceed (plus 5 points)
2) SCAN if SENDER have received email from destination (you) (checks headers ref)
pass, go to INBOX
THEN…do the rubbish as adsense always mess up….
